Liverpool are set to return to training at Melwood on Wednesday, however, one player will not be present, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Goalkeeper Loris Karius recently cancelled his contract with Besiktas, meaning that he is a Liverpool player again.

However, as Karius is not able to register for the remainder of the Premier League season, he will not be present at Melwood when training resumes.

ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT

With Karius having to force his loan spell short with Besiktas, it would have been good for him to see his Liverpool teammates again.

There is no denying that it has been a difficult period for the 26-year-old, which can be backed up by the fact that he had to leave Turkey early as a result of unpaid wages. With that being the case, seeing some old faces could have given Karius a lift.

But, if there is no need for Karius to be at the club, then this is a decision I support. The club need to keep the players safe from the coronavirus. The less people they interact with the better.
